Spring Feast In NYC

For our friend Jess’s birthday, we called upon my brother’s incredible culinary talents to cook up a Spring feast in her NYC apartment. The space was tiny, but he came up with some pretty amazing stuff. It was the first weekend in May, so the spring veggies were insanely ripe. Here are some pics from the day…

butter champagne

The necessities: Prosecco, butter, and of course…

cheese plate

CHEESE (in this case, creamy Taleggio)

prosciutto toast

And no day cheese plate can ever be complete without prosciutto (and fig jam).


Fiddleheads are the coolest.


Best cheese of the day — gorgonzola crema dulce

morel mushrooms

Morel mushrooms — also the coolest


Just one more of the chz


Pork fat works better than pot covers

cleaning radishes

Apparently these are called ‘French breakfast’ radishes

spring bruschetta

Ricotta toasts with ramps, fiddleheads and morels

lobster roll

Lobster roll with bacon and tomatoes

glazed radishes

French breakfast radishes glazed with butter

And for the grand finale…

cassoulet with poached egg

Pork cassoulet with soft boiled eggs

Yet another awesome day thanks to Tom. You da man bro.
